Well, my 2 cents.

I'd like to think that the Prelinger and Skip's AV Geeks are Rick's and Skip's section entirely. Why move stuff into their collection when it's not theirs?

I agree with you totally that there needs to be another section added. As I like to see the OPen Source movies as movies that the user has made, and your (well titled) section, PD Short Films. Anything over say, 30 mins, would go into Feature Films, which seemed to have been made into an open source section recently.

I agree that it would be better with 3 groupings: PD Short Films (under 30 minutes), PD Features (30 minutes or more), & Open Source Movies (for personally-generated video/film).
However, it's going to stay confusing as long as there are artificial catagories existing. Of course, the Prelinger Archive should stay as a seperate link, with all of those films availible through that link. But, they Also need to be availible through, say, a Government films link, a Commercial films under 30 minutes, Commercial films 30 minutes or longer, Advertising films, Home Movies (pre-1980, or some such cutoff, to differenciate them from the next catagory), non-Commercial films (1980-present, for much of the Open Source content). At least have a prominent Directory link that would take you to a listing of Catagory links, along with a Search box (if you don't see what you want immediately) with options for searching by either Tags or Keywords.
Easy enough to whip up, eh? lol
